Description

Crested Helmet. Mended and restored. Made from two sheets of hammered bronze, one of which, slightly larger, is folded over the edge of the other along outer margin of crest and behind large protruding rivets beneath the crest. Oblong rectangular pieces riveted over the joints for greater strength where strain was heaviest. Nine rivets fasten each of the re-inforcements, 3 protruding ornamental rivets in center, 3 plain on either side. Decoration of crest: lines and rows of dots of various sizes arranged around a large central boss.
